be altering the presidential campaign which is one week to election day, president obama and governor romney canceled rallies and stump speeches on monday and tuesday. yesterday, president obama spoke from the white house briefing room. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election, i am worried about the impact on families and worried about the impact on our first responders, i am worried about the impact on our economy. and on transportation. you know, the election will take care of itself next week. >> and here is what governor romney said. >> on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. >> and our hearts and our prayers go to them as we think about how tough it is going to be there. i don't think there has been a hurricane in ohio in a long time. but there have been some hurricanes that have caused a lot of damage across this country and hurt a lot of families and their families are in harm's ways that will be hurt either in their possessions or perhaps even something more severe. >> we have faced these kind of challeng
! (laughter) how about iraq? >> governor romney, was the war in iraq a good idea worth the cost in blood and treasure we have spent? >> it was the right decision to go into iraq. i supported it at the time; i support it now. >> jon: but do you support it -- (laughter). now? >> we don't want another iraq. we don't want another afghanistan. that's not the right course for us. >> well, i guess that's not a flip-flop so much as a principled recognition because of the iraq war's current unpopularity. (laughter) you know what? iraq and afghanistan those are yesterday's wars. it's tomorrow's war that counts and if there's anything governor romney has been vociferous about lo these past 18 months it is his uncompromising belief that it's time to rattle our sabers at iran. >> this is a president who should have instead communicated to iran that we are prepared, that we are considering military options, they're not just on the table, they are in our hands. >> the president should have built credible threat of military action. when they see our military option in our hand, a possible blockade or ae
blow the kiss good-bye. >> mr. mourdock's comments do not reflect governor romney's views. we disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest-- increst but still support him. >> jon: not often do you hear someone say i disagree with your views on rape and increst but -- -- incest. >> i disagree with your views on rape and incest but not a deal breaker. (laughter) well, if romney wasn't willing to throw mourdock under the bus the same couldn't be said for your friends at morning joe. >> it is remarkable what republican candidates have said this year. >> i know. >> regarding abortion, regarding rape. >> jon: finally, republican admits fellow republicans is renug-- repugnant. please, continue with the moral stand you take. >> i'm a pro-life guy. but they are driving away so many swing voters. >> jon: no, that's not the problem. that's not the problem. no, no, no. the problem is the beliefing of the things, not that he-- the problem isn't that he violated the first law of the fetus club which is don't talk about fetus club, like that's not-- because it's the idea. i mean wh
to election day, governor romney resumed a full campaign schedule today. he's in florida right now. about to kick off the second event of the day in south florida. congressman paul ryan is in wisconsin. vice president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaig
romney is called governor for a reason. he was governor of massachusetts. he knows something about how the federal and state relationship works. there's nobody in washington who could look at this program with a straight face and say there couldn't be improvements made to it. let's see how we can get people -- get money to the people faster. in fact, president obama himself said that today. he instructed the federal government no red tape, no bureaucracy, so i think that that is a little bit preposterous to hang that on mitt romney. one of the first things he did, romney, was to say send out an e-mail to people who had donated to his campaign saying we don't need your resources at this moment. give to the red cross or check on your neighbors in need if you can. if you want to say where did they start being political with this, on saturday when the white house itself, the federal government itself put out a statement about the storm, it uses the campaign language lean forward which also happens to be a competitive network slogan that they use. i could not believe that somebody in the wh
of things. remember governor romney is called governor for a reason. he was governor of massachusetts. he knows something about how the federal and state relationship works. there's nobody in washington who could look at this program with a straight face and say there couldn't be improvements made to it. let's see how we can get people -- get money to the people faster. in fact, president obama himself said that today. he instructed the federal government no red tape, no bureaucracy, so i think that that is a little bit preposterous to hang that on mitt romney. one of the first things he did, romney, was to say send out an e-mail to people who had donated to his campaign saying we don't need your resources at this moment. give to the red cross or check on your neighbors in need if you can. if you want to say where did they start being political with this, on saturday when the white house itself, the federal government itself put out a statement about the storm, it uses the campaign language lean forward which also happens to be a competitive network slogan that they use. i could not belie
. >> nothing governor romney just said is true. >> yes it is! (laughter) you apologized. not only that, you bowed to leaders all over the world! that is not presidential! f.d.r. never bowed to foreign leaders. (laughter) he never even stood for them! (laughter) but obama -- (cheers and applause) -- obama, obama will bow to anyone! hell, after the debate he bowed to romney's grandson! (laughter) and, folks, great points by romney but it's not just what romney said it's the way he didn't say it. >> the president had a very intent look on his face. i wouldn't describe it as a mean look, i would describe it as a man looking for opportunities to strike. >> governor romney, it seemed to me, had this kind of benign default expression in which he appears to be interested most of the time, he has a slight smile on his face but not a smug one. i wonder if hi his was not the more attractive default expression. (laughter) >> stephen: yes! romney's face totally kicked obama's face's ass. (laughter) jimmy, put up romney's default expression. see? see? that's nice. that reminds me of a benevolent angel wa
, for my race, and especially for governor romney and congressmen brian. one of the reasons i am looking forward to representing you is because i look forward to working with senator portman. he is tough as nails and has compassion and he is someone who understands the values of the state of ohio and i will be proud to serve with him and i will be proud to making the senior senator from the state of ohio. congressman turner as well doing a fantastic job representing the miami valley. he has been doing it for a long will be proudtime and i believes throughout the miami valley are fortunate to have him and i believe in him as a leader and as a good person and a family man. senator brown and i are debating a variety of issues. one of the main issue was whether or not the free enterprise system works. i believe when someone decides they're going to go to a community bank for a loan to start a hardware store or go to family for investment or maybe still some property to start a restaurant and they take that business from two employees to 20, 200, we should celebrate that in america. we should
that is being fought over. it's along the massachusetts border. massachusetts is the stated that governor romney led. so it is a very interesting area. many of the people from nashua work in massachusetts. host: who are the voters in this area? guest: new hampshire has traditionally libertarian streak. our motto is live free or die. it is a tossup location. the voters, i think they are voting for the person they think is going to lead this country the next four years. some people will say new hampshire has a summer home of governor romney and the state next door, massachusetts, where he was governor. i think that is less of a factor. i think the people of new hampshire can see beyond that and are voting for the person they think is best for the 50 states. host: tell us about the history of new hampshire being a swing state. guest: traditionally, new hampshire was very solidly republican for many years. recently, i think it is sort of the clinton 1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point vict
. meanwhile, governor romney, he's back on the trail in florida. there's still just six days until the election. what does that tell us about where the campaign stakes are really in play this morning. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, october 31st, 2012. happy halloween. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to may first reads of the morning. we're still a long way from recovery. today after hurricane sandy's devastation we're seeing the very first signs of a return to what may be some normalcy as millions attempt to put the pieces back together. this hour new york city mayor michael bloomberg will ring the opening bell at the new york stock exchange which plans to be fully operational despite blackouts and flooding in lower manhattan. two of the area's major airports, jfk and newark in new jersey have opened with some limited service this morning. but new york's laguardia airport remains closed after major flooding. overall, nearly 19,000 flights canceled since sunday. the presidential campaign is resuming sort of. while the president will spend
've done in theirast or w wt they've said in the past. i would predict that if governor romney is elected president, he would support, nominate justices who would be more likely to overturn roe v. wade than would barack obama. i think that it is clear, t however, that he would not do anything to outlaw abortion in cases of rape, incest or life of the mother being endangered. i think we know that fm the exchanges to date. and so you can say he's had mor positions across time, and his position -- you can mark different points in the calendar across his life. , i do think that thpublic, by and large, perceives the fact that he has made more 180 degree turns than a whirling dervish. i read this comment online at "the washington post," a reader who said that, "romney has thrown limbaugh, rick perry, allen west and all the other tea party people under a freight train by essentially saying he would govern as president obama governs." that's what he, in effect, he said this past last debate. what about that? >> why would anyone believe that? yes, he said that and yes he did it to convey the impr
their operations, at least in terms of the daily tracking. governor romney today focused on fund-raising for the victims of the deadly storm while president obama canceled his events through wednesday to monitor the aftermath in response to hurricane sandy from the white house. we have team coverage here tonight. rick leventhal on the devastated jersey shore. shannon green on the storm damage in virginia, and ed henry tonight from the white house on the storm's political impact and the campaigns that are, tonight, frozen in place. many east coast residents heard or read weather forecasts and there's speculation about hybrid storms of the hurricane and nor'easter, perhaps, a super storm, as sandy approached, and they were understandably skeptical of what often turns out to be exaggerated meteorological storm forecasts. tonight they and millions of others find themselves suffering through what has turned out to be the mass devastation, wreckage, and misery that had been forecast for the eastern seaboard. fox news correspondent rick leventhal has our report from point pleasant, new
. that completely blows up governor romney's closing argument for why he should replace president obama in the oval office. >> indeed. jared, it's not just this issue of bipartisanship, but mitt romney, as you know, has said, previously and repeatedly, particularly in the debates, that he would like to remove an organization like fema. >> right. >> now, not only is that highly inefficient, in terms of resourcing, but can i ask you, would it not also likely raise local taxes, because if each state is required to provide emergency assistance, then each state has to fund what the federal government is providing right this moment. >> precisely. instead of having a centralized disaster relief fund, which, of course, fema represents, each state would have to do so. by the way, they wouldn't do so. because state budgets don't work that way. everything is fungible. and in tough times like now, states can't run budget deficits. that fund would be dry, i guarantee you. and what's going to happen? the federal government's going to say, no, forget it? that's just not part of our budget? again, you know, mitt r
, florida. former governor mitt romney is about to hold a campaign event with florida congressman connie mack. and the campaigns are getting back into full swing. mitt romney back on the trail. and a new poll out today shows a very tight, tight race in the sunshine state. every minute of campaigning will count and vice president biden will be there today as well. >>> romney is not the only one back on the campaign trail, as we point out. the vice president is, paul ryan as well as bill clinton. new polls giving a slight edge to the president. the power panel will weigh in on this in just a second. >>> plus, you can't forget this dangling crane, we've show you the images, that still happenings perilously above new york city. still a very dangerous situation. we'll bring you up to speed on what's being done to get that down safely. if you have pictures from the storm, tweet them to us, include the hash tag msnbc pics. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switc
: that was governor mitt romney earlier today laying out what he thinks will happen in just a few short days when americans cast their votes fora. a poll of registered pennsylvania voters show the president two percentage points behind where he was just last month. governor romney enjoys a five-point boost. it's 48-44% puts the race within 4 points in pennsylvania where it was 54-49 in november. detroit suggests a similar swing in voter sentiment. romney close the gap in michigan the detroit news. chris stirewalt is the host of power play on foxnews.com. governor romney is buying ad time and the president is trying to match him while sending bill clinton and joe biden, to minnesota and michigan all thought to be in the blue-state column in this election, because he's trying to head fake us or he has a legitimate shot of winning those election tore kwral rich states. >> part of the reason is that there is so gosh darn much money in this year's election neither candidate is abiding by the old limits on spending and the money is out there so both candidates have deep pockets in their campaign, they
will return to the trail in nevada tomorrow. and in the last hour, governor romney has this to say about the country coming together. >> we come together at times like this and we want to make sure that they have a speedy and quick recovery from their financial and in many cases personal loss. >> people coming together is what's also going to happen, i believe, on november 7th, and -- i know we have differing viewpoints with regards to the campaigns. up until that point but we get to vote on november 6th and on november 6th you'll see us describe our representative visions for the country. >> a tight race nationally but president obama maintaining a lead in swing states including florida, virginia and in ohio obama leads romney 50 to 45% among likely voters. he also has a huge advantage when it comes to early voters. among those who have already cast their ballots in the state, 60% of ohioans favor the president while only 34% voted for romney. meanwhile, team romney is pumping cash into states not expected to be competitive at this stage. the governor's campaign says it is seeing a resu
and frankly mitt romney is on the wrong side of it. governor chris christie of new jersey praised the federal government and president obama in particular. >> i was on the phone for the third time yesterday last night with the president of the united states. he called me at midnight last night. he accelerated the major disaster declaration for new jersey without the usual red tape. i can't thank the president enough for that. signed that this morning. and so i have to say this, the cooperation has been great with fema here on the ground at our intelligence center, and the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. he deserves great credit. >> mitt romney, on the other hand, cannot run from his declaration about fema during the campaign. the primary campaign. >> every time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and sends it back to the states, that's in the right direction, and if you can go even further and send it to the private sector that's even better. we should take all of what we're doing and say what are the things we're doi
the election this is also being viewed through a political lens. governor chris christie, a romney surrogate, will show the president the destruction, while new york mayor michael bloomberg politely declined a visit. this morning the president got a substantial briefing on what's happening and the federal support that's being provided for the recovery. some are calling this a commander in chief moment. but at the very least, this hurricane has complicated a very close presidential race. take a look at the latest national polls of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an amer
the president cancels another day of campaigning governor mitt romney is focusing on key battleground state of florida. this as we take a live look what is a rally in tampa. you see the stage sort of in the distance there. that is where former governor jeb bush will appear at any moment with mitt romney. the pair will travel to coral gables and jacksonville for two morallies later day. janice dean mentioned we are less than a week away from election day. chief political correspondent carl cameron is live in tampa with it all. hey, carl. >> reporter: hi, jenna. romney is eager to get back in the campaign saddle after day and a half lull for the sandy disaster. mr. romney has three events here in florida, a key battleground state where the polls continue to tighten. we've been telling everybody for year-and-a-half this is likely to end up close in a number of key battleground states as well as national polls. the national polls have been within the margin literally for weeks. in florida the latest quinnepiac survey, president is up two points. well within the margin and basically reflection o
. governor romney called for end of fema in the campaign, primary. >> dana: you know what? bob, that is really -- it's absolutely grossly unfair. president obama's budget last year, $900 million is what he suggested cutting. nobody in washington could look at the program and say that it couldn't be improved upon. that is what governor romney said. governor, who knows a little something about the state/federal relationship. knows what it means to work with the federal government hind the red tape, which is what president obama called for cutting is a problem. not a program that couldn't be improved on. >> bob: that' romney said shuttr fema. >> dana: that doesn't mean he wouldn't help people. that's grossly unfair. >> eric: we'll take a fema victory lap? >> bob: sure. >> eric: want to do that? >> bob: sure. >> dana: wait four days when they don't have power. >> eric: put your money where your mouthsy. told the story earlier, the house down there probably going to be wiped out, she said what about insurance? only way to get flood insurance along the coast is if you go to the feder
megyn: you can hear governor romney going through his five-point plan in the critical state of florida, that is essential to any route to the white house for him, no accident he is there. listen, we appreciate you being with us on this important news day. there's a lot going on these days, and we'll be with you throughout the days and weeks as we head into -- well, days now as we head into the big day tuesday. i'm megyn kelly, thanks for watching. here's mr. shepard smith and studio b. >>shepard: residents of a new york city neighborhood that burned to the ground during the storm, those pictures are just unbelievable how there. they returned to find that there are no homes. we will speak to a man who witnessed the fire like. the new york stock exchange re-opened today. all the fears of gloom and doom and a huge sell off, it did not happen. it was the longest weather-related shut down in more than a century. a huge news day all comes unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, the storm has left nothing but the tremend
polling data, is not at all a sure thing for the president, for mitt romney. and florida where governor romney's spending the day. the last 48 hours have seen a lot of the narrative move towards romney is in a commanding position particularly because we've seen advertising go on in pennsylvania and michigan and minnesota and surrogate visits. if governor romney can't find a way to win ohio, he's got a very hard path, and he still has to lock down these southern states. i think you're right. the romney people say they're in a much better position in ohio than these public polls show. if they're wrong about that, he's not going to win. >> every public media poll, willie, has to be cooking their books for barack obama. >> or assuming the electorate. >> or assuming the electorate's wrong. and if the electorate has changed so radically in two years that quinnipiac is confused, somebody will give a desser tags on it after the election. i'm frustrated this morning because they keep telling me, don't believe the media polls. here we are a week out, less than a week out. it's still five points i
